Dus-Chotimirsky - Mieses

St Petersburg 1909
Queen's Pawn Opening

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 d6 3.Nc3 Nbd7 4.e3

After 4.e4 the continuation might b e4...e5 5.Nf3 g6 6.Bg5 h6 7.Bh4 Bg7 8.Bg3

4...e5 5.Bd3 g6 6.f4 Qe7 7.Nge2 e4A premature attempt at attack. Instead 7...Bg7 followed by 8...0-0 and using the king's rook on the e-file was indicated.

8.Bb1 c6 9.Qc2 Nb6 10.b3 Bf5 11.a4

11.Ng3would have been simply met by11...O-O-O

11...Rc8 12.a5 Na8 13.Ba3 Qe6 14.Qd2 d5 15.Bxf8 Kxf8 16.cxd5


This exchange was unnecessary. White ought to have continued at once with 16.Na4 and if 16...dxc4 then 17.Nc5 would follow with an excellent game.

16...cxd5 17.Na4 Kg7 18.O-O Nc7 19.Nc5 Qc6 20.Rc1 Qb5 21.Nc3 Qc6 22.Ne2

 White might very well have continued 22.b4 b6 23.axb6 axb6 24.N5a4 Nb5 25.Ne2 Qd6 26.h3and White has a slight advantage.

22...Qb5 23.Nc3 Qc6 24.Ne2 Qb5 25.Nc3 Qc6 26.Na2 Qb5 27.Nc3 Qc6 28.Ne2 Qb5

1/2 - 1/2
